Skype.com – Video Chat with Your Friends All Over the World
If you’re looking for an affordable and easy way to chat with friends from around the globe, you may need to get yourself a Skype I.D. Skype is a free program that you download to your computer and then use when you’re online; you can call up anyone just about anywhere in the world and have free online chats, even using your webcam and microphone if you have one.
To use Skype, you first need to create an I.D. which is done with your email address. You can then search for contacts, using their Skype I.D. or email address; before you can begin a call with them, you need to put in a request to make them your contact. If they accept you can then call them when they have their Skype program open and chat at any time.
Skype allows you to control your availability; this means you can keep the program open and running so as to be notified when others log on or log off, but you can make yourself unavailable or invisible if you don’t want your contacts interrupting you.
Most of Skype’s basic features are free, however, you can add credits for a small fee that allow you to use their call forwarding feature so you can have Skype calls ring on your cell phone. You can also purchase unlimited usage of Skype so you can use it as much as you wish.
For business or for personal use, Skype is the web’s number one way to keep in touch with anyone, virtually anywhere in the world, and can work as your best means of chatting with friends and family as well.
